A developer known as Philip Wang has created a website that uses AI to generate fake faces every 2 seconds. The name of the website is called ThisPersonDoesNotExist and the faces look real. To use this site, all you have to do is hit the refresh button every two seconds and a new face will be generated. This online tool uses an NVIDIA-designed generative adversarial network (where algorithms square off against each other to improve the quality of results) to craft faces using a large catalog of photos as training material.
This tool is just a way of raising awareness that AI can be used to generate and manipulate images. It will surprise you to note that non of these people have ever existed before and will ever exist. They are completely fake faces. According to Wang, this tool does not require much computational power.
However, this system is not only limited to the human face. NVIDIA’s technology can also handle cars, cats and even bedrooms. This website, however, has its advantages and disadvantages. It can be used in a positive way to create plausible characters for a story. Also, it could also be used for scams that rely on bogus IDs and testimonials. We need to discuss the effects of websites like this and the ethics of AI image manipulation before it goes too far. We will keep you posted on any new update regarding this site.
